        Nobody to sell them to if there were. Hell, i don’t know of any AAA VR games period. :-/ Battlezone? Maybe?

        • The AAA VR games are from the big players, are in development, and on the slate for 2017 and 2018 launches. You could certainly consider Lucky’s Tale, Eve: Valkyrie, and Elite Dangerous Horizons to be the front runners of that pack.

  • Unreal : if you’re serious, you need Vive Lighthouse support immediately, since by my read there are less than 500 pairs of Oculus Touch controllers actually “in the wild” today, with a nebulous ship date.
